Second Chance
Lucifer Morningstar crosses path with a brilliant neuroscience professor in “Lucifer” Season 2. Fox

The devil has a date with an FBI Agent.

Fox series “Lucifer” has cast “White Collar” actor Tim DeKay in a pivotal role. DeKay will appear in episodes 12 and 13 as Dr. Jacob Carlisle, a talented neuroscience professor, TVLine reports. The devil (Tom Ellis) will cross his path and the encounter will have deadly ramifications on someone the fallen angel cares about.

Given that Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) is perhaps the only person Lucifer Morningstar cares deeply about on Earth, it seems like she will be the reason why he meets Dr. Carlisle.

However, “Lucifer” has shown Chloe to be in grave danger several times during the course of its freshman and sophomore run. In fact, Season 2, episode 9 saw Lucifer’s mother Charlotte (Tricia Helfer) realize that Chloe is the one who makes Lucifer feel like he belongs on Earth. She is the reason he wants to stay in Los Angeles. Hence, she decided to simply eliminate his only reason why her son refuses to return to heaven: Kill Chloe.

The final moments of the episode saw Chloe being stood up by the owner of Lux on a date and walking towards her car. As the detective fished for her car keys in her purse, Charlotte patiently waited to press a trigger that would detonate a bomb implanted in her car.

Will mom pull the trigger? All signs seem to say she won’t but given that Lucifer is slated to cross paths with a neuroscience professor, it does seem like Chloe will be imminent danger soon in “Lucifer” Season 2.

DeKay has appeared in ABC series “American Crime” and Fox show “Second Chance” since his stint as an FBI Agent named Peter Burke.

“Lucifer” received a full Season 2 order in October.

“Lucifer” Season 2 airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on Fox.
